College Football Rankings 2011: USA Today/Coaches Poll Leave Stanford No. 4

The week six college football rankings are out and the USA Today/Coaches Poll has left the Stanford Cardinal in the fourth position following their 45-19 victory over the UCLA Bruins. The Cardinal gained 12 votes and just barely retained a razor-thin margin over the Wisconsin Badgers. The Badgers pummeled formerly No. 8 Nebraska and now sits one vote behind the Cardinal in fifth place after passing Oklahoma State.

The top three in the rankings saw a slight change as Alabama broke a tie with LSU and now holds a two vote edge over the Tigers. Alabama is now only 11 votes back of Oklahoma for the top spot in the Coaches poll.

This coming week features a couple tough matchups for the top of the rankings. LSU hosts No. 18 Florida and Oklahoma travels to Dallas for their Red River Rivalry game against the No. 10 Texas Longhorns. LSU and Oklahoma will both be favorites, but they could face tough battles.
